Convenient Shelter for Wheelchair Users Invented (CIC-250)

Share Article

InventHelp, founded in 1984 in Pittsburgh, is attempting to submit this idea, the Wheelchair Poncho, to applicable companies for their consideration.

Disabled due to a violent robbery, an inventor from Chicago, Ill., relies on a wheelchair to get around. "Since the anti-crime organization I’m part of meets during the rainy season, I had the idea of a convenient and reliable way for wheelchair users to shelter themselves from the elements," he said.

The WHEELCHAIR PONCHO provides a wheelchair user with convenient and effective shelter. It protects the entire body against rain, hail and snow. As a result, it maintains dryness and comfort, as well as promotes peace of mind.

Compact, easy to use and producible in design variations, the WHEELCHAIR PONCHO serves as an alternative to inadequate umbrellas.

The original design was submitted to the Chicago office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
